I noticed that she has a black area around her vulva
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?
Customer: Hi, Pearl! Are you still there?
JA: No. I'm the Veterinarian's Assistant.
Customer: Did you receive my comment about my dog Josie having a blackish area around her vulva?
JA: Where does Josie seem to hurt?
Customer: I don't know that she is hurting; however, she bites at herself and scratches constantly. I read comments from others that reported a yeast infection
caused this same discoloration. What do you think?
JA: OK. No obvious pain. I'm sure Josie feels you are doing your best. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. How old is Josie?
Customer: She's about 7 years old?
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Josie?
Customer: Only that she has been treated for an ear
infection. Also, she gets pills for both flea and heartworm prevention.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
